Pokémon Go Creators' Game Ingress Is Gettting An Anime

Ingress, Niantic's second location-based game and the framework for much of Pokémon Go, is getting its own anime series, called Ingress: The Animation.

Variety reports the series will be done by studio Crafter, helmed by Yuhei Sakuragi (Neon Genesis Evangelion: Impacts), and feature character designs from Takeshi Honda (Neon Genesis Evangelion). Fuji TV and Netflix will help distribute the anime worldwide.

According to Niantic founder John Hanke, “The anime peers into the ‘Ingress’ universe and allows viewers to see a part of that universe that is uniquely expressed."

Warframe Is Coming To Switch

Warframe Is Coming To Switch

Warframe, the massively popular free-to-play looter shooter which recently received its Sacrifice update, is heading to Switch.

Taking a high-end PC and console game and putting it on Nintendo's portable hybrid console is no easy task, but rest assured: The port will be handled by Panic Button, the same people who recently ported both Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus to the console to surprisingly strong results. The company knows its way around the console and the magic tricks needed to get demanding games running on the platform, so hopefully Warframe doesn't feel too out of place on Switch.

No launch date was announced for the Switch version of the game.

What To Watch This Weekend: Counter-Strike, Heroes Of The Storm, And Dragon Ball FighterZ

What To Watch This Weekend: Counter-Strike, Heroes Of The Storm, And Dragon Ball FighterZ

The Fourth of July has hit the United States, meaning most people aren't getting anything done. This is a double-edged sword for competitive events; on one hand, it means there are fewer events going on, but on the other, it means you have more time to watch what is going on, what with the day off and all.

The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene is back in Cologne, Germany, for its regular ESL event. Watch as final four teams fight it out in the playoffs for the first-place $125,000 prize! (Stream and Schedule)

Meanwhile, League of Legends's North American league is heading its knockout stage (that's League for "playoffs), so if elimination is your thing, here's another way to watch teams get eliminated! (Stream / Schedule)

Weekend Warrior – Fireworks Of Our Own

Weekend Warrior – Fireworks Of Our Own

After a week that featured a holiday and the launch of our new issue, the Game Informer staff is enjoying a diverse collection of games this weekend. From playing through new experiences like The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit and Jurassic World Evolution to old favorites like Destiny 2 and Overwatch, the GI crew has a well-rounded diet of games heading into this post-holiday weekend.

What are you playing this weekend? Leave us a comment and let us know!

Leo Vader (@leovader) - In between prepping more of that sweet Destiny video content, I will be playing Rainbow Six Siege because it’s the only remotely good game ever made. The other night I heard my Gu trap go off and I knew where it was so I bolted over the second story railing and mid-air hipfire headshotted the guy pulling the trap out of his foot. So I’ll be trying to chase that high this weekend and for the rest of my life. HAGS!
